strong self-interest in seeing barack obama succeed. as you well know, after eight years of one party being in office, it's not easy to hold on to that office. and one of the things that helped to elect george h.w. bush at the end of reagan was reagan went out on a high. he had some trouble in the second term but he went out on a high. and that really helped bush. i think that's important for biden that president obama succeed. >> i just missed this one but the last vice president before george h.w. bush was martin van buren. >> biden has constantly been in and out of the dog house for say things he wasn't supposed to say for the longest time. right now, he is in, as gloria was saying, just the perfect sweet spot for him, because he has succeeded. the challenge is, i'm trying to emphasize about this speech, we don't know what the president wants to done in his second ter. such a litany of agent that items. you know, less is more. there was too much "more" in this speech and that i think is the trap for him now, for biden. >> i think it was a bold list the president puts out. the quest

it's what's great about this, you see michelle obama's style evolving over the years. in the thom browne, very tailored, traditional. a little bit a quiet look. what i love is maybe not every american woman has access to a beautiful custom made thom browne piece but they have access to the accessories. the j crew gloves. the j crew belt. a lot of woman look to her for fashion inspiration. she's very democratic about her style and people can access that. >> i think what's interesting about what happened with michelle obama today that's getting sort of a lot of chatter online is that she changed her shoes. she started out wearing j crew shoes. she changed into these custom made blue suede boots by reed krakoff. >> even though she's very influential, on a lot of tv screens, she's just like somebody else, in that she might have won the j crew pumps to the actual event, which is indoors, but it is cold out there, i'm putting some boots on, okay, and that's how we dress today. what's so great about her as first lady is she dresses like so many other moms just like her. >> she most certa

barack obama. >> reporter: the spri 85-year-old washington broadcaster has served as the announcer of every inaugural parade since eisenhower in 1957. he's coming up on 15 in a row. he's got a half century of memories to go with all of his parade scripts. >> one of the things that i found out over the years is that the inaugural parade is an extension of the president's personality. >> ask not what america will do for you. >> reporter: with kennedy and reagan came celebrities. >> see, as the announcer, i get a really good charge of rubbing shoulders with famous people and so that's what happens. >> reporter: but obama, brotman says, is different. >> what he does, his selection is from the heart. he's bringing in high school bands, college bands that have never been in a parade much less a presidential inaugural parade. so he's making it possible for these kids to have a memory they will remember forever. >> reporter: carter made his mark by being the first president to walk the parade route. >> must have been a shock to you. >> it was indeed. >> reporter: reagan, brotman says, saved h

. >> johnny rockets said, there are other menu options for those who have made a new year's resolution to lose weight. and uno's chicago grill says, we've really worked hard to make sure that choice receiver where. speaking of nutrition information, you may remember that during the debate over obama care, one of the things that's actually in the obama care health reform law is to have nutrition labeling on restaurant menus for these big chains, but it hasn't happened yet and it's not entirely clear when it is going to happen. so nepin the meantime, what youn do is look at the mean ewe and certain words should put up a red flag, should let you know, maybe you should look at something else. for example, if a dish has something that's battered, that's likely very high in calories, same for breaded. con queso means cheese, and crispy is a nice word for fried. and stuffed means it's probably stuffed with something creamy or cheesy. you can pick up your smartphone and go online and find the calories. if it's a big restaurant, it's likely it's going to be easy to find. i do it all the time. w

. you're in "the situation room." next monday president obama will speak to the american people and to the world in his second inauguration speech. but after four very challenging years in office what tone should the president strike this time around? joining us now democratic strategist paul begala and david frum, a former white house speechwriter for george h.w. bush. also author of "why romney lost." doing very well. here's what the white house press secretary said today about the president's speech preparation. let me play the clip from jay carney. >> all i can tell you is the president in general when he works on a speech writes them long hand on a yellow pad and i've seen some yellow pads filled with writing of late around but i don't have any more details on the speech. >> both of you are former speechwriters. paul, you wrote this on the daily beast. president obama's task is much like the couple renewing their wedding vows after decades of tough but rewarding marriage. if the words are too ideal list, they will seem hollow or saccharine. if too shallow, why even bother? take

time around. you remember four years ago. >> he looked more nervous than president obama. >> he was nervous. that was an awkward moment, as we say. let's talk for a brief moment on joe biden. he's playing an increasingly more visible role. what does that say to you long term? >> it's very hard for me to imagine joe biden as a 2016 candidate. i find it hard to imagine. the country will be ready for something new. >> if you turn your head side ways and close one eye, it kind of looks like the seal for the vice president that says president of the united states. everybody in washington but certainly every senator and vice presidencies himself as vice president. this vice president, the task for in the middle class, implementation of the recovery act and now within the last few weeks the deal on the fiscal cliff and gun violence, gun safety, this president has entrusted him with enormous responsibility and i think frankly the vice president has proven himself. >> i think when you do those high profile, it's like working at a nuclear plant that measures how much radiation you've absorbed
